    Default Season 227 - Let's Make a Better World



    The recent mass shooting in Orlando and the murder of a British MP are both consequences of certain politicians seeking power by preaching hatred. Something I find abhorrent.

    Perhaps in the Seasons, we can do our little bit to promote peace and reconciliation by singing songs that promote the idea of making the World a better place, so that's this weeks theme.

    Record a song that promotes a positive view of our future, one that suggests we can make the world a better place. Covers and originals both welcome, in fact I think the theme will give plenty scope for the songwriters among us.

    Rules
    a) Ukulele should be the main instrument though other instruments are fine in addition.
    b) Start and finish on Sunday as usual so 8 days.
    c) Multi tracking, plugging in etc. are all OK
    d) Three song limit so I can keep up with commenting. (Hopefully)

    Timely theme, Geoff! Maybe it will help us understand this crazy and sad year a little better.

    First of all Geoff, thanks for posting the theme early. The events of the past week have left me searching for hope. I felt compelled to do a song that reminded me of the greatness of the world and creation, and vaguely involved time for last week's theme. I think it fits way better in this week. And since I have not posted it yet, I will hold it back.

    See you at midnight or thereabouts.

    It'll be 11am local time by the time Midnight comes around.

    Looking forward to your entry.

    Should I do a song from Hamilton or a song by Courtney Barnett?

    My wife heard a song this week that she liked so much she wrote down the lyrics to help identify the song. It turned out to be Courtney Barnett's cover of the Grateful Dead song New Speedway Boogie.

    Yay! If we don't make it with our last song for last week, it fits this week's theme as well What a wonderful world!
